Michelle Yeoh has continued her incredible awards season streak by making waves at the 95th Academy Awards, winning Best Actress for her performance as Evelyn Wang in Everything Everywhere All at Once.
Yeoh is the first woman to identify as Asian — previous Oscar winners Merle Oberon (in 1936) and Vivien Leigh (1939 and 1951) both hid their ancestry and never openly identified as Asian — to win the award in the near-century of Oscars events.
A24’s Everything Everywhere All at Once has had no shortage of acclaim since its release last year, and adding to the above, it’s also won Best Picture.
The sci-fi comedy film from the Daniels (a.k.a. Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert) took home the Academy’s top spot. It’s the apex of an awards season that has seen Yeoh and her Everything Everywhere All at Once co-stars practically sweep the proceedings, with Yeoh herself scoring Best Actress wins at the SAG awards, Golden Globes, and many, many more. In other wins for the film, Ke Huy Quan took the Best Actor in a Supporting Role for his turn as Evelyn’s husband Waymond, Jamie Lee Curtis won Best Actress in a Supporting Role (in a category that also saw Stephanie Hsu nominated for EEAAO) and director duo the Daniels — Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert — took home Best Director, as well as the Best Original Screenplay.
Congrats to Everyone (Everywhere, All at Once) who worked on the film!
